The power of imagination makes us infinite.
By tapping into our power of imagination, we create infinite possibilities
I only went out for a walk and finally concluded to stay out till sundown, for going out, I found, was really going in.
We are now in the mountains and they are in us, kindling enthusiasm, making every nerve quiver, filling every pore and cell of us.
I am losing precious days. I am degenerating into a machine for making money. I am learning nothing in this trivial world of men. I must break away and get out into the mountains to learn the news.
Going to the mountains is going home.
Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves.
The clearest way into the Universe is through a forest wilderness.
Between every two pines there is a doorway to a new world.
I never saw a discontented tree.
The mountains are calling and I must go.
And into the forest I go to lose my mind and find my soul.
Another glorious day, the air as delicious to the lungs as nectar to the tongue.
Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop away from you like the leaves of Autumn.
Thousands of tired, nerve-shaken, over-civilized people are beginning to find out that going to the mountains is going home; that wildness is a necessity
Who wouldn't be a mountaineer! Up here all the world's prizes seem nothing.
Most people are on the world, not in it.
In every walk with nature, one receives far more than he seeks.
